Basketball continues to reach out to school talent.
The 2014 KPMG Inter-School Under-14 Basketball League is under way with matches four times a week in George Town. The competition has seen close finishes from the competing local schools and the emergence of budding prodigies like Justin Collins. Technical director for Cayman basketball Victor ‘Voot’ O’Garro spoke about the early showing.
“The league has just gotten off the ground, it’s going very well,” O’Garro said. “The kids are going straight from the school to the court. The team that is unbeaten now is Clifton Hunter and we’re trying to get them to bring two academies instead of one as they essentially made an all-star team to represent the school. By comparison, John Gray has teams from more than two of its academies.
“In the girls league, Triple C beat Wahoo on Wednesday in a very entertaining game. So, on the whole, it’s a very exciting competition.”
League matches, which take place at 3:15 p.m. and 4:15 p.m., are split into boys and girls divisions. The boys play Tuesdays and Thursdays at the University College of the Cayman Islands multipurpose hall. The girls are in action Mondays and Wednesdays at Triple C.
